by howard fineman. great to have you with us tonight, howard. >> hi, ed. >> you know, the president has to win the middle class to get re-elected. let's operate on that premise. does this issue win the middle class? >> i think the republicans and democrats inhabit different universes. mitt romney's really being run by that 10% that you showed in the poll, the 10% who think the taxeso on the rich are too high. those are the people running his show. and from the republican strategist point of view and i talked to one today, they think anytime they yell tax at barack obama, they have a winner. he's a tax razor, a tax raiser. >> the white house answer to that is going to be mitt romney is republicans are out to screw the middle class and they're not using the tax code in the best possible way to create jobs. because if you talk to economists and i have, fair minded ones, not raging liberals, fair minded ones, they will tell you that cutting taxes on the wealthiest americans while it might create some jobs, is certainly not the most efficient way to use the tax code to create jobs. as a

motions were discussed. one that is significant for us and for your public is there will be a limiting order not quite a full gag order, but something that will include something like a gag order, information released to the press and therefore to the public. so a lot of what's in the search warrant will not be made public for a long time as this point. and from this point forward, charges one week from now and then the schedule of a preliminary hearing at which time there will be some testimony taken probably from tr both sides just as to establish there is probable cause for an arraignment. and then at that point a couple things will kick in. we'll hear about -- the clock will start for the prosecution during which they have to decide whether to go for death. and the defense will have to determine and say at arraignment when they have to enter a plea, not guilty by reason of in-issay insanity. likely be examinations. perhaps committed to the state hospital. and then a determination about whether he can assist in his own defense, understands the charges against him or needs to be rest

remain critical. melissa? >> chris, i so appreciate you moving us from the suspect, james holmes, to the victims and the survivors. i think in the days to come, undoubtedly, we are going to want to know more about their stories. but one more thing on holmes is obviously that his apartment is very heavily booby-trapped and the police announced last night after the exhaustion of the day they were going to be holding off on trying to enter the apartment until today do. you know what the situation is there at the apartment? >> reporter: the intention the to try to go in again today but the problem is they don't know exactly what they are dealing with. you have this situation that few people have seen with all these criss-crossed wires. they are connected to what police believe could be insidiary devices. you have one-liter bottles with a liquid in there. you have jars full of ammunition. we know he bought in the two months leading up to this four guns and 6,000 rounds, melissa, of ammunition. and the question becomes, why would he tell police? he's the one who told police, go to my apart

of my first term as president of the united states. >> president obama has left us with middle class promises. >> how has the president's record challenged this? >> in a real way the competitor is the obama of 2008. some expectations were deliberately and some voiced upon him. if you listen to a focus group as i did a couple weeks ago, people see the economy getting better. but they thought that this president would make it get better much faster. he is, i think that's his issue, is to try to convince people that the economy is getting better while not open newsing how wonderful it is. >> that's the challenge. he has to talk about what he's done without folks saying it's perfect because then he's out of touch. >> if you don't get people believing in what he represents in his programs, and frankly he's been doing better, but it is half-hearted. and i don't think most people -- >> you mean in ter of the communicatn strategy. >> in communication and also what he's doing. we all know he sent a jobs program up. hit congress harder and send up another piece of legislation. what is he going

president obama treats his bundlers? well, governor romney promises not to tell us who his bundlers are. oh, so president obama discloses the names of people who bundle big fundraising donations to him. mitt romney is pledging to keep the names of his secret. but his big attempted political pivot this week is to make president obama seem like he's the one that's a little shady about his donors, the donors president obama discloses publicly and mitt romney keeps secret. oh, republicans love justin bieber's electric car, and somehow that means communism, foreign, or what not. this is a mess, and if that is not a big enough mess, there's also buzzfeed reporting this week of the 17 political appointees announced by governor romney in 2006, of the 17 political appointees he announced that year, 15 were campaign donors to him. 15 of the 17, now he and his campaign are egging on the national press core to ask about campaign donors getting political favors. 15 of his 17. are you familiar with the fail whale? it's something that turns up on twitter when something internally goes wrong with the s

joining us. >> good to be here. >> i promise i'm going to stop with the baseballanalogies. i'm done. >> that's all right. throw it my way. >> one stat that's sort of blowing my mind right now, over 2008 we had a 750% increase in negative political ads. you know voters claim that they hate this stuff, but what's the truth? i mean, are these negative ads working? >> they wouldn't do them if they didn't work. negative ads are significantly more effective than positive ads. if you're barack obama, you don't really have a choice. they went with this strategy. they're going to stick with it which is to go negative early and do it consistently between now and election day to try to define mitt romney in a very negative way and very unlikable way with hopes that people don't pay as much attention to the economy and what happened over last four years. you have to when you're a politician deal with the reality that you're playing in. and this reality is the economy stinks. it's unlikely to improve between now and the election day. health care, which is the biggest achievement, has a plurality

, and richard wolf. tell us what you found about mitt romney's exit date from bain. >> well, what we found, lawrence, is that the documents that mitt romney filed with the state ethics commission here in massachusetts, combined with some s.e.c. filings by bain capital put him as you noted as the sole stockholder, chairman of the board, 100% owner, president, ceo, et cetera of bain capital until 2002, which is later than his stated exit date of february of 1999. >> one of the things in the filings indicate he was getting a salary from bain and the brackets indicated on that form simply indicate that the salary was above $100,000. do you have any idea what the salary actually was? >> we don't. you're only required to report a range, so it says $100,000. it could be any amount beyond that. we know it was more than that in total coming in from bain, because this is separate from the capital gains he earned on the investments. those are passive investments. but what's interesting is that money, the $100,000 was for being an executive at bain. that was in 2001 and 2002. those are not noted

. chuck todd still with us. chuck, he talked about the jobs report. he also mentioned the issue of health care. he was really trying to touch on the issues that might energize the base and the undecideds. he took eight or nine questions which he normally doesn't. >> let's start with health care. boy did he pivot as fast as he could. questions specifically about the president's charge. that was a striking charge for him in an interview that aired earlier from ohio where he said mitt romney changed his position on the mandate whether it's a tax or not due to pressure from the conservative wing of the republican party. he basically answered the question the same way he answered for years. what i thought was right for massachusetts was in massachusetts. i never said it should be done federally. he pivots back to the economy as if to say that didn't work for me and i am not going to relitigate. a few things caught my eye in the remarks. mitt romney has to sell gloom and pessimism. the president has to sell optimism. you are seeing the two striking visions on the last ones. the president
